Conflict of Interest and Conflict of

Commitment (COI/COC)

Conflict of Commitment policies are intended to help employees manage and balance their primary obligations to the university with valuable outside professional activities that have the potential to benefit the employee and promote the mission of the university.

Conflict of Interest policies are intended to ensure that members of the university community do not engage in behaviors that risk compromising the university’s reputation and integrity.  Conflicts of interest especially may corrode the university’s reputation and, thereby, erode confidence in the university and diminish its trustworthiness and stature. Disclosure and management of these interests allows universities an opportunity to mitigate risk.
